Testing Objectives

The cornerstone of our exam service is a robust and fair test design that is maintained for all subjects, courses and programs. Every course of CIEL has a  list of test objectives that are continuously reviewed and updated.  Questions in the bank are linked to the test objectives of the course and created at varying levels of complexity and addressing various taxonomical levels. We use the Bloom’s taxonomy framework to define the difficulty levels of questions and the framing of testing objectives.


Question Bank

A dedicated team of SMEs ensures that all question banks are up to date, reflects the training content and the current market dynamics accurately. Each question is carefully crafted and mapped to various evaluation attributes including subject, module, category, level of difficulty, taxonomy and other user-defined attributes. These attributes are used for measuring, aggregating and comparing performance at different levels and used extensively by our analytics engine to provide very accurate, robust and easy to understand graphs, reports and dashboards. Our online service provides an extensive library of reports during and after our tests, catering to MIS, ranking and performance views.

The service also provides the ability to configure practice tests, negative marking, questions based on a case study or using pictures, providing feedback for correct and incorrect choices and an array of options to control the user experience during a test session.
